The filings include the Yorkville High Income Composite MLP ETF and the Yorkville High Income Infrastructure MLP ETF.

The filings include the Yorkville High Income Composite MLP ETF and the Yorkville High Income Infrastructure MLP ETF. The underlying indices to these funds are comprised of MLPs that meet certain criteria relating to current yield, coverage ratio and distribution growth.

“These filings come on the heels of the successful Yorkville High Income MLP ETF (YMLP) launch, which is the first and only ETF to deliver exposure to high income, commodity-based MLPs. Since its launch, YMLP has become the third-most successful ETF launch in 2012 in terms of average daily volume,” asserted Darren Schuringa, Managing Partner at Yorkville ETF Advisors.

The Yorkville High Income Composite MLP ETF will track the Solactive High Income Composite MLP Index, a composite representing every MLP sector, while the Yorkville High Income Infrastructure MLP ETF will track the Solactive High Income Infrastructure MLP Index, a diversified, rules-based index focused on the infrastructure sectors of the MLP asset class.

Exchange Traded Concepts, a private label ETF provider, will serve as investment adviser to the funds, while Yorkville ETF Advisors and Index Management Solutions will serve as sub-advisers.

The Solactive Indexes are sponsored by Structured Solutions.
